Mary Poppins Mary Poppins has been one of my favorite childhood memories when I was growing up. I grew up watching the movie almost every day, and when I turned thirteen my parents decided to take me to the play. I’ve seen the play three times now and it is still one of my favorites. This play has a lot of meaning to me because it reminds me of my childhood; it also reminds me of my dad because Mary Poppins is his favorite Disney movie. When I got the chance to see the play, it was life changing. Along with this play bringing back so many memories, it is one of my favorites because of the characters. Mary Poppins when she is first introduced seems like she’s going to uptight and wants everything to be “spit spot.”(Mary Poppins) Once they go on the journey with Bert, the children realize who she really is. She is a fun, energetic, loving, caring nanny and the children end up having a lot of fun and enjoying their time with her. I also enjoy the language that Mary Poppins uses, such as spit spot. (Mary Poppins) That is a not a term most people are used to and when I hear people say it today, I instantly think of seeing this play. I love how this play is also half a musical and half a play, growing up my dad and I would always sing the songs such as “Spoonful of Sugar” and also “Let’s Go Fly a Kite.” Overall, I mainly enjoy this play because it reminds of my youth and reminds me of my father. He loves Mary Poppins and when he got the chance to take me to see the play, it was an experience for the both of us. This play is great for all ages, I grew up with it and I would go see it again tomorrow if I could.

    Eve, Mary-mother of Jesus, and Mary Magdalene are all prominent characters in the Hebrew and Christian Bibles and to some extent are mentioned in the Quran. Regardless of whether or not a person believes these women really existed as portrayed within these religious texts, they had and still have a major impact on societal views towards women today. For women to be truly liberated and treated as equals to men requires the circumvention of conventional patriarchal, anti-feminist interpretations and…

    The Gospel of Mary inspired the monologue of Mary Magdalene as Jesus’ sister. To me, it became clear that Mary had known the secrets of Jesus and Jesus treated her the greatest, since they were siblings and best friends, not lovers. I took the connection I had made and used it as the association of Mary Magdalene in the gospels. Mary Magdalene traveled with Jesus when he proclaimed the Kingdom of God, she was present with the mother of Jesus during his crucifixion, and she was present at the tomb…
